Question # 16

Are there publications dealing with interventions for persons with NLD?

We have developed a treatment programme (see Rourke, van der Vlugt, and Rourke, 2002, for the latest revision); see also the case reports in this volume that include specific applications of this intervention programme. Also, there are a number of descriptions of modes of intervention in the literature. The ones I know about are as follows:
